Smile Crocodile!

 Hello everyone! I hope you're having a great day today! This evening, I have a card to share with you for the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Stamp a Scene!

 The challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn, and there is still some time to play along, so don't forget to enter a card! Anyways, here is the card that I created:

I recently received the "Critters Down Under" stamp set from Lawn Fawn, so I was very excited to start playing with it! To make the sun, I used the small speech bubbles from the "A Birdie Told Me" set and wiped off the ink from the hooked part. The hearts are from the "Plus One" stamp set!

On a personal note, everything went really well with the 30 Hour Famine! As a fundraiser for the event, we had a "Pie in the Face" contest and everyone who volunteered has to get a pie in the face this weekend - including me. Great... :)

Well, I hope that you have a great day! Time for some ice cream! Yum! :)

Birthday Balloons!

Hi everyone! It has been way too long since I've had a chance to do some crafting! I am very thankful for my new job, but it means less craft time. My husband and I are also getting a bunch of things ready for a youth group event this weekend, too, so I've had even less time! Maybe next week! :)

I do have a card that I wanted to share with you though made with my new Paper Smooches stamps! Yay!

It is a very clean and simple birthday card which features the "Hullabaloo" stamp set from Paper Smooches. I paper pieced the balloons from Pebbles patterned paper and added some black Recollection pearls to help even things out.

I hope that you enjoyed the card! Do you have anything fun planned for this weekend? Our youth group is participating in a 30 Hour Famine, so I will have a hungry, but very blessed, weekend! I can't wait! :)

Love you!

Happy Saturday!! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day! I have a card to share with you for the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge! I recently received some Paper Smooches products and they are just so cute!

The current challenge is to create a card based on this sketch:

Here is the card that I created for the sketch challenge:

This looks so much cuter in real like (the colors look a little funny in the picture)! Anyways, this card feature's Paper Smooches' "Graffiti" and "Good Gab" stamp sets. It also features patterned paper from Pebbles' "Sunnyside" and "Hip Hip Horray" collections, as well as My Mind's Eye's "Memorable" collection. Plus, I used some enamel dots from My Mind's Eye (which are so much fun!).

Well, I hope that you have a good weekend! I am super excited because I accepted a new job position and I start on Tuesday (thank you President's Day!) and I am really looking forward to it! Do you guys have anything fun planned for this weekend?

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

 Hi everyone! I have a card to share with you for the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Be My Valentine!

 The challenge is to use the above photo as inspiration for you Valentine's Day card. Here is the card that I came up with for the challenge!

I added a cute, pink patterned paper from Pebbles to the base of white card stock. I rounded the corners of the card to make it a little bit different. Then, I stamped the speech bubbles and sentiments onto white card stock and a few hearts onto pink card stock. I cut everything out, and attached it to the card with foam tape! The stamps are from Lawn Fawn's "A Birdie Told Me" and "Happy Everything."

Thanks for stopping by! There are still a few days left to play along with the Lawncaping Challenge, so don't forget to enter! :)

Swimming by to say Hi!

Hi everyone! I hope that everyone had a good week! I am pretty excited to be done with house and pet sitting today! I am ready to go home! Anyways, I just wanted to share a card that I made a while ago for a magazine submission.

This little scene features patterned paper from Pebbles (I can't remember right now which collection.) This also features images from Lawn Fawn's "Critters In the Sea" and "Smitty's ABCs." The little fishes are my favorite part! :)

Well, I hope that everyone has a good day! I have an interview this afternoon, so I really hope that it goes well! Have a great weekend! :)

We'll miss you!

**Don't forget to leave a comment for the giveaway (that you can find here)! There are still a few hours left to enter!!**

Hi everyone! I have a quick card to share with you this evening! This card was made for a co-worker who recently accepted and started a different job. She will be missed!

(Sorry for the poor quality photo!)

This card features paper and stickers from Pebbles Inc. The white letters are from Lawn Fawn's "Quinn's ABCs" stamp set. I tore a piece of yellow patterned paper, adhered the letters to the paper, and attached it to the card base with the masking tape stickers.

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
